IOM Regional Office Brussels
IOM’s Regional Office for the EEA, the European Union and NATO pursues the well-being of migrants and societies through a rights-based approach to the governance of human mobility, to, from and within the region, which is coherent, holistic and balanced.
The Regional Office acts as IOM’s liaison and coordination office to the European Union and NATO and other key Brussels-based stakeholders. We support our 28 IOM Country Offices in the region and IOM Offices worldwide on EU-related policy, programmes, legislation and cooperation and resource management.
Our work is guided by IOM's Migration Governance Framework’s (MiGOF) principles and objectives which aim to facilitate orderly, safe, regular and responsible migration and mobility of people through planned and well-managed migration policies.
We engage in a broad range of areas at the regional and global level, as depicted in our work.
The Regional Office is also engaged in project implementation of centralized projects such as the EU Readmission Capacity Building Facility (EURCAP), the ACP-EU Migration Action, Mainstreaming Migration into International Cooperation and Development, and EU Election Support missions. We also host the Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Section.
